So I took a frame to get powdercoated with just a clear coat. I showed the frame to the guy (who does a lot of bikes) beforehand and he told me he could do it. But I just picked it up and the decal blistered under the clear powder coat. I'm not sure how to fix this. I was originally going to repaint (or, repowdercoat) the entire frame, so I had some decals custom-made already. But I can't put them over the old decal b/c the lettering of the frame name is an open type font so the frame color is supposed to show through the body of the lettering, which is now the blistered area. Any suggestions? Get a new decal made with a gold background instead of clear and hope that the decal guy can match the frame color from a photo?
